Pope Francis kisses foot of prisoner at prison for minors in Rome

During the evening Mass at a prison for minors in Rome, Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 young people of different nationalities and faiths, including at least two Muslims and two women, who are housed at the juvenile detention facility.

“I am at your service,” the pope said.

The pope greeted the residents with hugs and gave each of the young detainees a large chocolate egg and a traditional Italian Easter cake shaped like a dove.

The detainees, who range in age from 14 to 21, then gave the pope a wooden crucifix and kneeler they made in the detention center’s woodshop.

    He never ceases to amaze me. I find myself checking to see what has he done today? I wonder if people in Christ’s time felt the same way as they watched Christ? I think maybe so!
